Grout Sealing
       

Colour Sealing

Colour Sealing creates a long-lasting, durable layer of protection that prevents dirt and spills from absorbing into your grout. Your original colour or colour of your choice is "locked in" while spills, dirt and stains are "sealed out".

Colour seal is an acrylic grout seal, which comes in a variety of colours. Colour seals are designed to recolor, seal, and restore existing grout joints. It provides a consistent uniform colour along with an extremely durable & sealed finish. Clean Master services uses only the best! The colour seals we use contain urethane and concrete hardening agents; as well as mildicides that provide a sanitary surface for years. Before sealing your grout, it is important to have it thoroughly cleaned; otherwise you will be sealing in the stuff you are trying to seal out.

Colour seal should be applied to older floors that have been cleaned or newly installed floors as preventative maintenance. Some of the many benefits of this service can be found below:

  • Makes grout non-porous and stain proof
  • Acrylic coating
  • Match any grout manufacturers colour charts
  • Existing grout colour can be matched or changed
  • Leaves grout looking natural, not painted
  • Contains urethane hardeners, concrete hardeners and mildicides.
  • Makes grout sanitary and easy to maintain
  • Restores aged floor to NEW!!!
  • Environ-friendly safe products can be used to effectively maintain any treated areas
  • Aggressive chemicals no longer necessary.
  • With proper maintenance colour seals can last from 10 to 15 years.

Will the color seal keep my grout from getting dirty?
YES, it will. The color sealer provides a waterproof, stain resistant durable layer of protection. And with its mildicides, it guarantees sanitation for many years.

Do I have to use special cleaners on my color sealed grout?
Yes, it is recommended to use a Neutral Cleaner. Harsh or Acidic cleaners could break down the seal over time.

How long does the color seal last?
When maintained properly, and depending on the traffic/wear, color seals can last up to 10 years or longer.

Is it expensive?
It is more expensive than conventional sealers due to the product cost and labor involved in its application. But, if you consider its ease of maintenance, durability and life span, it is a better value over clear sealers. Also it is far less expensive than re-grouting or replacing your floor.

How is it different from a clear/penetrating sealer?
A Clear/penetrating sealer sits just below the surface of the grout, preventing staining, but not very effective for preventing soiling. Color Seal not only penetrates the grout, but also coats it, providing superior protection against both staining and soiling, while retaining the texture and appearance of your grout.

When should you apply the sealer?
Colour seal should be applied to older floors that have been cleaned or newly installed floors as preventative maintenance.

Clear Sealing

Grout is very porous and will absorb stains and dirt quickly thereby making a floor appear old and dirty even though the tile is in great condition. We can protect your floors, showers and countertops from stains that will preserve your investment for many years to come, by applying a unique sealant that will help to protect the grout and tile from staining and wear. The sealer repels liquids making your floor easier to clean.

Why should I seal my grout? Grout is porous which causes it to absorb water, oils and soils. The presence of these contaminates leads to the growth of mold and mildew. Grout Sealers help to prevent this absorption into the grout line.

Will the clear sealer keep my grout from getting dirty? No, it will not. The purpose of the sealer is to protect the grout from staining in order to allow the grout to be cleaned in the future as normal wear of the surface causes it to become dirty again. Without the sealer you invite deep staining of your grout. Please understand that a clear/penetrating sealer sits just below the surface of the grout, preventing staining, but not very effective for preventing soiling.

Do I have to use special cleaners after my grout has been clear sealed? Yes, it is recommended to use a Neutral Cleaner. Harsh or Acidic cleaners could not only strip the dirt but also the sealer.

How long will the clear sealer last? Manufacturers claim that their sealer can last anywhere for 3 to 7 years under perfect conditions which is usually not representative of most floors or walls. The life of the grout will vary depending upon wear, maintenance practices and the effects of the cleaners being used.
